Wallpapering Over Wall Hinges?
I'm currently working on my first dollhouse. I bought this already assembled and have noticed there are hinges in the corners of most of the rooms (photos attached) some of which stick out quite bit. I am wondering if anyone has suggestions for how to hide these as I don't want them to show under my wallpapers. (it seems as if they were used to pull the corners of the dollhouse walls together)
I am currently working on my first dollhouse. It is an Alison Jr. I am hoping to handpaint and illustrate my own wallpaper and am not sure where to start. What paper is recommended? Also wondering if a seal, specific glue is required. I was hoping to make individual entire wall sized paintings (probably with watercolour paint) that will mount to the walls as wallpaper (and won't fade over time).
Out of Practice
I have built a bunch of mini homes but I think the last one I did was over 4 years ago. I really want to get back into it, I have tons of kits that I have great ideas for but I am feeling a little panic. I just have not done this in so long I feel like I am going to screw it up somehow. Starting with a Buttercup cottage for a 4 year old relative. Looking for some good tips and maybe a few words of encouragement!

New member introduction and first questions :)
I am happy to join this community of all things miniature.
A little about myself: I have a very creative mind. Ever since I was a kid, I collected toys and simulated battles or adventure stories. I think that miniatures helped me escape from reality and I was able to create my own world. However, growing up, I lost touch of this passion of mine. I hope to rediscover this passion by exploring other people's creative worlds.
First 2 questions: Where do you usually buy your miniatures and what do you look for ?
